Fitness: 5 Workout Tips for Beginners
FITNESS- One of the sports that are currently quite popular among the people of Indonesia is fitness. Here are some tips for you.
1. Start Slowly
The first tip for beginners is to start slowly and gradually every few days. Do the exercises at least 1-2 days per week for 30 minutes per day.
2. Don’t Forget to Stretch
It is also necessary to warm up and stretch the muscles before and after doing the exercises. As a suggestion, when you warm up, you should stretch your muscles and hold them for about 15 seconds to prevent injury.
3. Find out the Weight and How to Use the Fitness Equipment
Do not be lazy to ask for you beginners. At the fitness center, there are many people who can help you in carrying out a fitness program with the tools available at the gym. At the gym, there are usually many officers who are on standby to help you explain the correct way to use certain tools, as well as tell the function of these tools.
Asking questions will help you avoid injury caused by yourself. This is because beginners usually start training with the heaviest weights they can lift. In fact, you should start with the lightest weight first. It’s best not to increase the load first every week, to avoid injury and get the best benefits from fitness.
4. Find Out Time to Rest
Many people think that doing fitness every day is good for health. In fact, your body also needs rest to compensate for exercise time. If you don’t have time to rest, your body and muscles don’t have time to recover. So, your performance will drop and it will be difficult to fully recover. Don’t worry if after doing fitness, you feel sick or sore after going to the gym (not because of an injury). That’s good because it means your muscles are starting to feel the effects. Don’t use painkillers and let it heal naturally.
5. Avoid Only One Field
The next fitness training tip for beginners is to avoid trying just one area. Know, that during fitness training, you can do any activity according to the health and fitness targets you want to achieve. You can combine various sports as desired, such as aerobics, strength (resistance) exercise, flexibility (including yoga), and balance exercise.
Similarly, when undergoing strength training, you should not only focus on one area of the body, such as the arms or chest. It is also necessary to pay equal attention to all areas of your body such as the shoulders, stomach, calves, back, and so on. So, preferably in one day, don’t just do the same thing, but you can do fitness alternately with other activities.
Those are 5 fitness training tips for beginners that you can follow. In addition to routinely doing fitness exercises, it’s a good idea to balance it by implementing a healthy lifestyle such as nutritious food, adequate rest, avoiding stress, not smoking, and so on. It is also necessary to regularly check the physical condition first.
